Patient Comments (6)
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Dr. Ky Kobayashi has treated me for arthritis in my clavicle and shoulder, severe muscle spasms in my back, and hand surgery to repair a severed nerve in my finger and two tendons. He is the best Dr. I have ever had. He is a talented surgeon who recommends a conservative approach when appropriate.He answers all of my questions and fully explains any procedures and conditions I have had. A truly kind and confident man. It isn’t often you come across such a special person and talented physician.

I had a chronic acute massive injury to my right shoulder when I tore two muscles that are part of the rotator cuff. I asked Dr. Kobayashi to not treat me as the 60 year-old male that I am, but to repair my shoulder as if I were on the Air Force Hockey team. With a sincere smile and a firm handshake he agreed to do so. I had my surgery on March 1, 2017. I returned to work 4 days post-op wearing a sling but able to work. At 3 1/2 months I was released from his care and resumed playing tennis

Dr. Kobayashi is an amazing doctor and equally amazing person. I have been treated with such kindness, understanding and care, not just another patient. His staff is wonderful too. I have been telling everyone about The Center and highly recommend it.

He figured out my issue I've been having for over 2 years, other doctors missed it and he found it within two visits. I was fixed and home all in a weeks time.
